2011 Newbery and Caldecott Award Winners
Growing up, I remember looking–with reverance–at books branded with silver and gold Newbery and Caldecott medals. I knew those books were extra special, awarded by the American Library Association as being the best of the best in written (Newbery) and illustrated (Caldecott) children’s books.
This week, the ALA press release announced their winners of this year’s Newbury and Caldecott medals:
John Newbery Medal (outstanding contribution to children’s literature): “Moon over Manifest,” written by Clare Vanderpool, is the 2011 Newbery Medal winner. The book is published by Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, a division of Random House, Inc. (Click here for more book award winners.)
